Crest Hill City Hall will be open as a polling place on Tuesday but not for non-essential city business.

The city announced it is suspending non-essential operations starting Tuesday to avoid the spread of coronavirus.

City Hall will not be open for walk-in business, City Administrator Heather McGuire said.

"We will have a rotating staff member in each department to address issues, open mail, and return phone calls.," McGuire said in an email. "The remainder of staff will be working from home."

The city issued a news release saying emergency services including police will continue. Crews will be dispatched for water main breaks.

City Hall also will remain open Tuesday as a polling place from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. for Lockport Township Precinct 21.

The city advised that residents call 911 for emergencies. Non-emergency police department calls should be made to 815-741-5111. Residents should call 815-741-5100 for other matters.

Updated information will be shared on the city web page, www.cityofcresthill.com, and through emergency alerts.

"It is our hope that these temporary modifications will promote the public health and welfare for all of our residents and employees," Mayor Ray Soliman said in the news release.
